Theo Fleury is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player.
Theo Fleury hit the ice at age five. He was a hockey phenom at 14, a Stanley Cup champion at 20 and an Olympic gold medalist at 33. He was also keeping a terrible secret. As a teen, he was sexually assaulted by one of his coaches. Hockey became an escape, but it couldn’t fix everything; he faced addiction and suicidal thoughts. Today, Theo is sober, and he talks with host Chamique Holdsclaw about what it took to get there. Subscribe to the podcast: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Podcasts

Welcome to Episode 10 of Beyond the Big Red Truck Podcast!  In this episode I had an epic conversation with retired NHL Super Star, Theo Fleury!  On the ice, Theo was a phenom at every level he played.  He played on four NHL teams, scoring 1088 points in 1084 games, winning the Stanley Cup in 1989 with the Calgary Flames and won an Olympic Gold Medal with Team Canada in 2002. However, as we find out in this conversation, believe it or not, Theo's biggest accomplishments in life came after hockey.  We talk about how he's chosen to live his life now despite the horrific obstacles and demons he faced and belive me, This conversation is real. Theo proves by his actions, that he is walking the the talk and as he says " helping people overcome obstacles by igniting leadership, action and resilience from within".  I know you will enjoy this so please listen, share and comment.  Also, Check out Theo's website for all the amazing things Theo is doing to make the world a better place.  Much gratitude, BRad https://www.theofleury.life
